Our Story

It all started with one little van...

The Mears story began in 1988 when a little known maintenance contractor in Gloucestershire, with a tiny work force, took its first steps as Mears Limited. Within four years Mears won its first local authority contract and achieved a remarkable £2.5 million turnover! All from a cosy portacabin.


Mears Group won the PLC Award for New Company of the Year on the LSE Main Market. Mears was listed on the FTSE4Good Index in recognition of its Community and Social Responsibility activity.
